I do not see much value in abbreviating the file name at all; unless
that is important for other features to work, I find that the original
file name should be preserved in case of doubt. (symbol-file
'prolog-mode) correctly evaluates to "/Users/mt/prolog.el", so this is
what should be shown. Otherwise, even future changes to load-path could
lead to distorted file origins of functions that are already loaded.
